Explanatory 

The order of arrangement in this work is by genera- 
tions; also by families in chronological order as nearly as 
practicable. 

Full names are given to the heads of families, followed 
by the christian name of their children. 

Individuals are consecutively numbered, some names 
appearing first as a child, and next as the head of a family. 
In the latter case, the number first given is marked by a 
plus "+" sign, and is repeated in a bracket, as a genealogical 
number in the following and proper generation. 

A star, denotes an addition to the record, which will 
appear in the supplement. 

To find the line of descent, look for the genealogical 
(or bracket) number which precedes the name desired, and 
the person thus found, if the head, or eldest of a family, 
will be immediately followed by the lineal descent by 
generations. If not a head, trace backwards the relation- 
ship, as a brother or sister, of the preceding persons until 
the head is reached. 

The lineage can also be traced either forwards or 
backwards, by using first an individual number, and next, 
a similar number in brackets, alternating from one to the 
other — or vice versa. 

Abbreviations in common use, and the following

Introduction 

To write a perfect genealogy, is beyond the power and 
skill of man. As his thoughts turn toward the misty ages 
of the past in search of ancestral knowledge, he soon finds 
himself lik t a wanderer over a trackless desert, utterly lost 
upon the wide domain on which he has entered, and as a 
mirage fades away and disappears before his wondering 
vision, so does much sought for data, elude his most faith- 
ful research. 

Genealogy, may be compared to a chain, the links of 
which are composed of births, marriages and deaths, and as 
a faulty link endangers the strength and security of a chain, 
so a faulty record, impairs the reliability of this endless 
chain of life and death, and although the compiler of 
genealogical statistics desires to be accurate in every detail, 
he is more or less a victim of circumstance, dependent as he 
is upon the accuracy of numerous correspondents, who are 
more or less unintentionably liable to error. 

As all should be interested in the threefold phases of 
human experience, we deem it advisable to embody in a 
tangible form, a record of those families, who by con- 
sanguinity or affinity, are more nearly allied to us than are 
others. Only in this way, are we enabled to hand clown to 
posterity a succinct knowledge of our forefathers and fore- 
mothers. 

With this thought in mind, was this little work com- 
piled, and although it may be found very imperfect in many 
respects, our only apology is, — that we have done the best 
we could. 



The name 'EMMONS' is undoubtedly of English 
origin. Surnames having the same phonetic sound, and 
the appearance of being derivatives of the same root, yet 
being entirely different in their orthography, are a source of 



VI THE EMMONS FAMILY INTRODUCTION 

much trouble and uncertainty to the investigator of eenea- 
logical records in determining which out of the numerous 
catalogue thus encountered, should be classed as belonging 
to a particular family. Especially is this the case in tracing 
the genealogy of the Emmons' family in Old England. 

A few examples taken from church records and other 
sources in that country, will illustrate some of the numerous 
forms under which the name appears, viz: 

"Married at St. Albans' Abbey." 

" Emun Nicholas & Cicilia Fitch, wid., Jan. IS, 1559." 

"Baptized at Parieh Church of Thorington." 

"Emans Robert, sonne to George Emans & Dyonys his wife, Nov., 
24, 1594; Emans William, sonne of George Emans & Dyonys his wife, May, 
28, 1598; Emans Olyver, sonne of Geovge Emans & Dyonys his wife, June 
18, 1600." 

"Emans Abraham, was enrolled as an 'Innocent under the Common- 
wealth of Ireland' when Charles II. succeeded Cromwell in 1656." 

"Emins John, church-warden, Fench Lane, Cornhill, London, had a 
servant buried at St. Michaels Jan., 5, 1612." 

"Emyn John, lost his wife Mary by the plague, Aug., 10, 1625." 

"Emens Susan, servant to Mr. Eemans in French Lane, was 1 juried 
Dec, 28. 1636." 

"Married at St. Mary Magdalene Church, Old Fish St., London." 

"Emmons Benjamin, smith; to Rose Ives, June 8, 1620." 

"At St. Peters, Cornhill, London." 

"Emins Robert & Mary Conclade, Oct., 6, 1642." 

"Buried at Christ Church, New Gate St., London." 

"Emmings John, March 3, 1673." 

"Married at St. Dunstan, Stepney." 

"Emmons Joshua, of Ratcliff, mariner, to Ann Grinnell, April 17,1707." 

"At St. Martins in the Field." 

"Emmins William & Elizabeth House, Aug., 19, 1717." 

"At St. James, Clerkenwell. " 

" Emmans John, son of William & Mary Emmans, born .Sept., 16, 173s." 

"At St. George's Chapel, May Fair." 

"Emmon Bridget, to Thomas Harris, Nov., 14, 1742." 

'At St. George, Hanover Square, County Middlesex." 

"Emmens James & Frances Freeland Faithful, May 27, 1816." 

Some of the foregoing forms are duplicated in the 
United States as a distinct family name, but in general the 



THE EMMONS FAMILY INTRODUCTION vii 

difference in orthography is owing to the mistakes of those 
who had the making up of records, where the name was 
given orally to be transcribed, and in so doing, they were 
written in accordance with the phonetic sound rather than 
by the correct orthography. This will be observed in the 
making up of legal and other documents ; also in filling lists 
of names for any purpose, especially so, during the seven- 
teenth and eighteenth centuries. In the lists of soldiers 
during the Revolutionary War, the name is spelled in 
nearly a dozen different ways. When written by our 
ancestors it was at first written EMONS, and later EMMONS 
the last form being now generally adhered to by the des- 
cendants of the original family. 

There are at least three separate and distinct branches 
of the Emmons family in the United States, which are 
supposed to be in no way related to each other. 

One of these families is of Dutch origin, the first men- 
tion of whom is found in the records of the "Suffolks County 
Deeds," in the person of Johannes Emans, a Notary of 
Boston from 1652, to 1656. 

Another branch of the same family, are the descen- 
dants of Andries Emans, who emigrated from Leiden, in 
the Netherlands, in the ship St. Jean Baptist, May 9, 1661, 
and settled in Gravesend, Long Island, where he with twelve 
others petitioned the authorities for lands on Staten Island. 

It is inferred that Andries the emigrant, although 
hailing from Leiden, was among those Englishmen who 
left their native land and emigrated to Holland to enjoy 
religious liberty, and to avoid persecution. His four sons 
were Jan, Jacobus, Andries, Jr., of Gravesend, and Hen- 
drick Emans of New Jersey. 

J. A. Emmans, great-grandson of Andries, Jr., was the 
first to use two M's in writting his name. Their descen- 
dants, many of whom now write their name Emmons, are 
found in Greater New York, and in the States of New 
Jersey and Pennsylvania. 

A number of the members of this line, are mentioned 



Vlll TIIR EMMONS FAMILY INTRODUCTION 

in the ' 'Early Germans" of New Jersey, and in the ' 'Official 
Register" of New Jersey, in the "War of the Revolution." 

Another line of the Emmons family, are descendants 
of William Emmons, who came from England about 1718, 
locating first in Taunton, Mass., removing thence to South 
Farms, near Litchfield, Conn., in 1733, where he died in 
1763. He left three sons, viz: William, Woodruff and 
Arthur. William, Jr., had two sons; Woodruff had six, 
and Arthur had seven. 

Several of the descendants of this line were noted men ; 
among whom was the Rev. Frances Whitefield Emmons, 
A. M., who was born in Clarendon, Vt., February 24, 1802. 
He united with the Baptist Church, at Swanton, Vt., in 
18 1 6, when fourteen years of age; entered the Baptist 
Literary and Theological Seminary, at Hamilton, N. Y., in 
1821; graduating in 1824; entered Columbia College, 
Washington, D. C, where he remained two years; entered 
Brown University, Providence, R. I., graduating in 1828; 
taught school in Connecticut, Ohio and West Virginia, 
was associated in 1831-33, with Alexander Campbell, in 
revising the new version of the New Testament, comparing 
it thoroughly with the original Greek; was ordained a 
minister of the Church of Christ, (Disciples) and for many 
years was widely and favorably known as a writer on 
theological questions. His death occurred suddenly in 
Worcester, September 26, 1881, where he was attending 
the annual meeting of the Church of Christ, leaving a wife 
with whom he had lived to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary 
of their wedding day, and four daughters to mourn his loss,— 
his only son having died in infancy. 

Another noted man in this line, was Rear Admiral, 
George Foster Emmons, U. S. N., a native of Vermont, 
who was born in 181 1. He entered the U. S. navy as mid- 
shipman in 1828; became passed midshipman in 1831; was 
commissioned lieutenant in 1841; commander in 1856; 
captain in 1863; commodore in 1868; rear admiral in 1872, 
and was retired August 23, 1873. He was attached to 



THE EMMONS FAMILY INTRODUCTION IX 

Captain Wilke's South Sea exploring expedition of 1838-42 
served on the western coast of Mexico and California, 
during the Mexican War; captured Cedar Keys, Fla., and 
Pass Christian, Miss., with twenty prizes in 1862; was fleet 
captain under Dahlgren off Charleston, in 1863; commanded 
a division of blockading vessels in the Gulf of Mexico in 
1864-65, and raised the American flag over Alaska in 1868. 
He was the author of the "Navy of the United States" 
during the war of the Revolution, from 1775 to 1853, and 
other works. 

With the foregoing brief notice of two of the separate 
and apparently distinct Emmons' families in this country, 
we will turn our attention to the third, and the one in which 
we are more particularly interested, it being that of our 
ancestral lineage. 

When our forefathers took passage in the good ship 
Mayflower from Delft, on the sixth day of September, 1620, 
it was to seek a home in the wilds of America, where they 
could be free from religious persecution, and could worship 
God in accordance with the dictates of their own conscience. 
Yet in less than two decades from the time they landed on 
Plymouth Rock, the persecuted, had in turn become the 
persecutors. 

In 1637, what might have been deemed liberal ideas, 
but what were regarded by the dominant party as heretical 
delusions, had so far infected the popular mind in Massa- 
chusetts, and especially in Boston, as to alarm the authori- 
ties and churches in that province, and caused them serious 
distrust. Accordingly they convened a Synod of most of 
the ministers of the colony of Newtown, — since Cambridge, 
—on the 30th of August, 1637, which remained in session 
until the 22nd of September. During this session, they 
condemned eighty-two alarming errors, and at the Court, 
on the following November, a pretext was found, whereby 
three Deputies, and a number of the principal citizens, 
were first deprived of their arms, and banished from the 
settlement. Thus, in the name of religion, were these recreant 



X THE EMMONS FAMILY INTRODUCTION 

brethren sent forth into the wilderness, without arms, and 
subjected to the mercies of the hordes of savages by whom 
they were surrounded. 

In March previous to this decree, William Coddington, 
one of the banished Deputies, through the meditation of 
Roger Williams, had purchased of the Indian Chiefs, 
Canonicus and Meantonomi, the Island of Aquidneck, 
situate in Naragansett Bay, R. I. 

In March, 1638, followed by his associates, they re- 
moved from Massachusetts, and commenced a settlement 
on the north end of the island, called Pocasset, — since July 
1st, 1639, called Portsmouth. 

On January 2d, 1638-9, a portion of them removed and 
established themselves at Newport, — the now famous 
fashionable summer resort. Among these were all the 
prominent officials, and although the number of settlers 
which removed from Portsmouth were less than those who 
remained, the removal was regarded as a removal of the 
seat of government. On October 8th, of the same year, 
a census was taken of such persons as were by general con- 
sent of the Company, admitted to be inhabitants of the 
Island called Aquidneck, "and have submitted themselves 
to the government that is, or shall be established according 
to the Word of God therein." The entry of this census upon 
the minutes of the Assembly, consisted of sixty-two names, 
written in two parallel columns headed thus: 

"Samuel Hutchinson." "Thomas Emons." 

This is without a doubt, the first time that the family 
name of Emons — or Emmons, as now spelled — appears 
upon any existing document, either public or private, in 
America. 

The following pages will contain a partial record of 
this branch of the Emmons family, beginning with their 
first ancestor, Thomas Emons of Newport, R. I., and in- 
cluding a genealogical and biographical history of many 
of his descendants, covering a period of nearly three hundred 
years, from 1639 to 1905. 



First Generation 

[1] THOMAS EMONS ' , cord wainer ,— or shoemaker- 
was in all probability born in England, but in what part, or 
at what date, remains a mystery. Whether he left England 
wealthy or poor ; a man of family or single ; whether he landed 
first, at the port of Boston, or some other, is not known. 
Yet the fact that he did not arrive in the good ship May- 
flower in 1620, is well established; therefore his descen- 
dants are saved from an inordinate self-esteem, and a feeling 
of superiority over their fellow mortals, who may be less 
fortunate in this respect than themselves. 

As has been already stated, we find him a resident of 
Newport, Rhode Island, in 1639. On March 12th, 1639-40, 
a convention of the two towns of Portsmouth and Newport, 
was held at the latter place, at which a new form of govern- 
ment for the whole island was established, and officers were 
elected under it. 

Thomas Emons, with seven others presented them- 
selves, and were admitted as "Freemen of this Body, fully 
to enjoy the privileges belonging thereto." To become a 
freeman, each person was legally required to be a respect- 
able member of some Congregational church. 

They were made freemen by the General Court of the 
colony, and also by quarterly courts of the counties. None 
but freemen could hold office, or vote for rulers. May 14th, 
1634, the General Court ordered the following form of oath 
to be administered: — 

"I, A. R. being by God's providence an inhabitant and freeman with- 
in the jurisdiction of this Commonwealth, do freely acknowledge myself to 
be subject to the government thereof, and therefore do here swear by the 
great and dreadful name of the Everlasting God, that I will be true and faith- 
ful to the same, and will accordingly yield assistance and support thereunto, 
with my person and estate, as in equity I am bound; and I will also truly 
endeavor to maintain and preserve all the liberties and privileges thereof, 
submitting myself to the wholesome laws and orders made and established 
by the same. " 

"And further, that I will not plot nor practice anv evil against it, nor 
consent to any that shall do so, but will truly discover and reveal the same 



2 TIIK EMMONS FAMILY FIRST GENERATION 

to lawful authority now here established for the speedy preventing thereof." 
"Moreover, 1 do solemnly bind myself in the sight of God, that when 
I shall be called to give my voice touching any such matter of the State, 
wherein freemen are to deal, I will give my vote and suffrage, as I shall 
judge in mine own conscience may best conduce and tend to the public weal 
of the body without respect of persons or favor of any man. So help me 
God in the Lord Jesus Christ." 

The next knowledge we have of him is when, "Thomas 
Hmins, was admitted to be an inhabitant of Boston, June 
29th, 1648." From this time until his decease, he remained 
a resident of Boston. 

The following data, concerning him and his family, 
are taken from the public records of that city. In giving 
them, we shall follow as far as possible their chronological 
order, and shall endeavor to copy them verbatim, as regards 
orthography, &c. 

On a deed from John Marshall of Boston, to John 
Marrion of the same place, dated February 18, 1649, 
appears the names of Thomas Emons, and Martha Emons, 
his wife, as subscribing witnesses. 

"Thomas Emans, cordwainer, with wife Martha, were 
admitted to First Church, Boston, February 18th, 1651." 

" He was admitted a freeman there, May 26th, 1652." 

As shown in a deed of Thomas Yoe to Phillip Wharton, 
date of December 16th, 1653, Thomas Emans was a shoe- 
maker, and owned a house and lot in Conduit Street, Boston. 

In the bounding of some real estate March 30th, 1654, 
his name is spelled Emmins. His name appears upon the 
following deeds as a subscribing witness, viz: — George 
Mitchell &c, Oct. 21, 1654; Edward Baker &c, April 11th, 
1655; Joseph Armitage &c, Feb. 28, 1656; and on an ad- 
ministrators deed of July 17, 1656. 

The following is a verbatim copy of his last Will and 
Testament made in February, 1661, N. S. : — 

"20, llmo, 1660. I, Thomas Emons of Boston in New England, cord- 
wainer, being sicke, make my last will (Debts to be paid.) 

"I giue unto my sonne, Obadia, sonne Samuell, daughter Hanna Crab 
& daughter Elizabeth Hincksman, 5s, pr peice, to be paid them by my Ex- 
ecutrix within a Considerable time after my Deceas (Declaring hereby that 
my Children Before named, have had of my Estate, before the Day of ye 
Date hereof their parts proportioned with other of my Children hereafter 
named. I 

"Into my sonne Benjamin 20 pounds, to be paid by my executrix 
at or before the end of Fine yeares after my Deceas, by the ualue thereof 
in good paye. 



THE EMMONS FAMILY FIRST GENERATION 3 

"Unto my Gran-sonne Thomas Unions, sonne of Obadiah, 40s, to be 
paid him or to his use within three yeares after mv Deceas. 

"Unto my Gran-sonne Samuell Crab, 40s, to bee paid (as before.) 

"Unto my Kinswoman, Martha Winsor, 40s, to be paid her on the Day 
of her Marriage, or at her age of 21 which of them shall first happen. 

"Unto my wife Martha, my two Houses in Boston, that is to say, the 
House I now Dwell in & my House now in the tenure of John Andrews, 
Cooper; the said Houses & Land to haue & to dispose of as shee shall think 
good. 

"Unto my wife all the mouable goods within my now Dwelling house. 
My Wife Martha, 1 make executrix of this my last will." 

"In the presence of us 
John Bateman, William Pearse." "Thomas Emons." 

Mr. Emons was chosen sealer of Leather, April 4th, 
1662. He died May 11th, 1664. His Will was probated 
June 17th, 1664. The inventory of his estate apprized by 
William English and Edmund Jaclon, amounted to the sum 
of 440 pounds, 5s.; debts due the deceased were 66 pounds, 
6s. 4d. — "from ye deceased 45 pounds, 10s, 09d." 

Martha Emons, widow of Thomas Emons of Boston 
dictated her will, March 30th, 1666. Her will is number 
433 on the Probate Index of Boston. The following copy 
of her Will is of interest, showing the quaint mode of spell- 
ing &c, of ye olden time. 

"30, lmo, 1666. I, Martha Emons of Boston, widow, 
being sieke & weake in body, but of prfect memory, make 
this my last will, Debts to be paid.

An inventory of the estate of Martha Emons, taken

"A share in the Conduit 14 pounds; also debts of John 
Hincksman, &c."

[2] OBADIAH EMONS 2 (Thomas 1 ), cord-wainer, 
Boston, b. abt. 1635; m. abt. 1657, Alice - -, who d. abt. 
1671-5; m. 2nd. Mary ; he d. subsequent to 1702. 

He first appears as a beneficiary of his father's will in 
1660; also in the will of his mother Martha, in 1666. With 
his wife Alice, he executed a real estate mortgage Nov. 7, 
1670, to secure the payment of twenty-five pounds, pay- 
ments to be made semi-annually for three years with "ye 

Just Damages." 

As a specimen of the manner in which legal documents 
were drawn three centuries ago, a portion of this mortgage 
is transcribed : — . 

"To all Christian People to whom these presents Shall Come, Obbadiah 
Emins of Boston, in ye County of Suffolk in New England, Cordwainer, 
And Alice his wife Sends Grieting:— 

"Know yee that ye sd. Obbadiah Emins & Alice his wife for and in

on ye North East. etc. etc." 

Obadiah with several others signed a petition to the 
General Court of Mass., February 22, 1675, relative to the 
war then being carried on with the Indians under King 

Phillip. 

His wife Alice died about 1671-5, and he remarried, 
for he with his second wife Mary, executed a mortgage, 
January 21, 1675, to Mr. Bozoon Allen, to secure the pay- 
ment of SO pounds, S shillings and 2 pence, to be paid in one 
year. The mortgage was foreclosed by Mr. Allen, and the 
propertv was purchased Dec. 10, 1677, by John Bonner of 



THE EMMONS FAMILY SECOND GENERATION 7 

Boston for 200 pounds. In this, or some other transac- 
tion, he felt himself aggrieved and petitioned the General 
Court of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay for relief, as shown 
by the following extract from the minutes of that body. 

"October 13, 1680: "In ansr to the peticon of Obadiah Emons, the 
Court judgeth it meete to refer the petitione to the County Court of Suffolke 
for reliefe, if he hath had any wrong, who have full power to act in all such 
cases." 

In 1692 an Act was passed: — "That henceforth no dwl Home, Shop, 
Warehouse, Barn, Stable or any other Housing of more than 8 feet in length 
or breadth & 7 feet in height, shall be erected and set up in Boston; but of 
stone or Brick, & covered with Slate or Tile, unless in particular cases where 
Necessity requires, being so judged & Signified in Writing under the Hands 
of the Justices & Select Men of the said Town or major Part of both. " 

A petition to repeal the above law was presented to the 
Court, June 11, 1697, and among other petitioners were the 
names of Obadiah and Benjamin Emons. 

Obadiah 's name appears in a list of the inhabitants of 
Boston in 1702. He died in 1705.

her father Thomas Emons' will, to the amount of 5 shillings. 
As she is not mentioned in her mother's will, while her son 
Samuel was bequeathed the sum of IS pounds to be paid 
him when he was twenty years of age ; it is inferred that she 
died previous to 1666.

dan. of Robert Seott; d. Boston, 1685. 

Bv the will of his father he received five shillings; and 
by that of his mother, the dwelling house and land in 
Boston, which she occupied while living. His name- 
written Emmons — appears in a Boston tax list of 1674-5, 
in which he is assessed for ten houses. On May 18, 1674, 
Samuel and his wife Mary, executed a deed of one of their 
tenement houses to William Parsons of Boston, for the sum 
of 147 pounds, 10 shillings: "Situate in Conduit Street, 
near the draw-bridge, together with all and Singular, the 
Shops, Cellars, Chambers, Rooms, Entry-wayes, passages, 
yards, backsides, lights, Water courses, easements, profits, 
Comonages, comodities, and appurtenances whatsoever to 
the said messuage or tenement belonging, &c, &c." The 
above premises were bounded on the "North East by the 
house and Land of Obediah Emons." 

Samuel, with 128 other persons, petitioned the General 
Court on May 29, 1677, "that power might be granted to 
the Selectmen, to execute orders that the Handy-craftsmen 
might be protected in their trades." 

In the case of Samuel Emons, No. 1430 on file in Pro- 
bate Court, Boston, it appears that the deceased died inte- 
state, and that administration was granted on his estate 
on Oct. 27th, 1685, to Mary his relict. The administratrix 
filed an inventory and at the bottom is this endorsement, 
"and the estate being so unsettleable and consisting of 
household necessaries, the court settled the same upon the 
widow for her own necessary support and education of six 
children."

He held several offices in "ye towne of Boston," such as

was Tithingman in 1681-5, and 94; Hogg-Reeve in 1683-4 
and 1701-2. 

The town records for May 9, 1701, show "that the land of Benjamin 
Emons is layd out to him according to his grant the 28th of August 1679 & 
the post neer the corner of his house being removed, that boundary is stated 
to be two foot southwesterly from the Corner of his old house." 

On July 3d, of the same year, "that Benjamin Emons' petition for a 
Timber building is allowed upon Condition that he first either remove that

himself & his successors not to raise the Same higher than the Levell of the 
ground, and Also pay unto the Towne as a quit rent, the Sum of Six pence 
per year until he make it appear that the Same be removed." 

His Will No. 3,283 on file at Boston, bears date of the 
8th, and 20th, day of March 1710, and was proved Dec.

IO THE EMMONS FAMILY SECOND GENERATION 

March, 1651; was still serving his time as an "Indentured 
Apprentice" to Mr. William Brenton, as a cord-wainer or 
shoemaker, at the time of his mother's death in 1666. 

In our research, we have been unable to find any early 
records relating to him. A soldier of his name was enrolled 
as a private in Captain Lathrop's company November 9, 
1675, to serve in the war against the Indian, King Phillip, 
which we believe to have been the subject of our sketch. 
We are inclined to think that he was married previous to the 
war. Otherwise we are unable to account for the origin of 
several persons named Emmons, who are incidentally 
mentioned in the records of Boston. They were either 
emigrants, or descendants of the emigrant, Thomas. If 
descendants of the latter, they must have been children of 
one or more of his four sons. As we have a very fair record 
of the families of Obadiah, Samuel and Benjamin, it seems 
to us as probable that some of them might have been the 
children of Joseph. We may be wrong in our supposition; 
but will take the responsibility of inserting the names of at 
least four of them as such ; also assert that the name of his 
first wife was Elizabeth. 

At sometime subsequent to the war, he settled in 
Hampton, N. H. When nearly fifty years of age, he m. 
2nd, the 12th of June, 1694, the widow Mary W. Swaine. 

With several others, he petitioned the Selectmen, 
Dec. 3, 1709, for an order to raise a special tax to support a 
minister at Hampton Falls, and again the 13th of May, 1710, 
to set the boundary lines of the parish.

Rev. Drinker organized the First Baptist Church of 
Boston in 1665 and d. in 1700, a persecuted and prosecuted 
preacher of that denomination, both in Boston and Charles- 
town. 



[13] SAMUEL, (bro. of Mary), b. Boston, 8 Nov., 
1671; was a twin of Obadiah Jr. We believe him to have 
been the Samuel Emons who resided in Cambridge, and 
migrated thence to Wethersfield, Conn., abt. 1691, where 
he m. abt. 1692, a dau. of Deacon Samuel Butler, and 
where at least two of his children were born. 

He settled in East Haddam, Conn., some few years 
later, where he with his wife were adm. to Ch. 5 Oct., 1705, 
and where he died at the advanced age of 96.

tailor, b. Boston, 9 Feb., 1669; bap. 13 Mar., 1669; m. 15 
Sept., 1698, Mary Warmal; and was the fifth child of Samuel 
Emons and Mary Scott. 

For several years he was the proprietor of an Inn, 
located on the dock near the fish market in Boston. Like 
some inn-keepers of the present time, he did not live up to 
the demands of the law regarding the sale of spiritous 
liquors, and for this reason the following record was entered 
on the minutes of the town board. 

"July 5, 1715, Nathaniel Emons' Petition to Sell 
Strong drinck as Retaylers was disallowed by ye Sel. men." 

At the next annual meeting of the board, held July 
24, 1716, he renewed his application, with the result that it 
was again disallowed. This decision of the select men was 
rescinded, and three days later; "July 27, 1716. Nathan '11 
Emons, at ye Dock at Fish Market, his Petitions to Sell 
Strong drink at Innholder is allowby ye Sel. men." 

He died intestate, and the records (Probate No. 4,507) 
show the estate to have been insolvent, and no names of any 
heirs. Administration papers were granted to Mary Emons, 
his widow, Jan. 15th, 1721. On July 10th, 1722, she made 
application for a renewal of the license in her own name. 
The record states, "that Mary Emmans in the Room of 
her Husb'd was granted an Innholder 's license to Sell 
Strong Drink." Another record under date of Aug. 19, 
L730, states that "On the Petition of Mary Emmans, Tav- 
enor, to Remove & exercise her License where She lives 
Near Ann Street, approved and Reccommended."

[24] EBENEZER, (bro. of Hannah) b. Boston, 18 
April, 1683; m. Elizabeth, dau. of Humphrey Dearing, of 
Arundel, Me. 

He appears as a witness to a deed between Mr Allery 
and Mr. Dearing of Kittery, Jan. 5, 1712; also btw Mr 
Haley and Moore, 5th of March, 1718; also btw. Mr Jordan 
and Peppenll, 10 Oct., 1718; also as a witness and appraiser 
of the Will of Mr. William Larabee, 5 Apr., 1727, and 8 Aug., 

At a meeting of the military officers of Kittery, held 
Sept. 15 and 17, 1722, several houses were designated'to be 
placed in a state of defense against the Indians, and certan 
families were ordered to occupy the same. The house of 
Mr. Henry Barton was designated as number thirty-two, 
which, when port holes for firing muskets and other changes 
had been made, was occupied by five families, including 
that of Mr. Emons. 6 

It is probable that Ebenezer was the ancestor of the 
numerous Emmons' families who settled in Wells, Kenne- 
bunk and other parts of the state of Maine. 

A Samuel Emons (who might have been his son) living 
seven miles from the church in Wells, being negligent in his 
regular attendance on the Sabbath, was indicted for the 
same in 17.'>7. 

It was in a deep gully near the house of Samuel Emons, 
that Sergt. Stephen Larrabee shot the noted Indian Chief! 
Aggawam, as he was removing a beaver from his trap.

He was the first " Emons" to write his name "Emmons." 
In 1698 he took dismission from the First Church, 
Boston, and was adm. to membership in the Old South

Fourth Generation 

[44] Deacon, SAMUEL EMMONS 4 , (Samuel 3 , Oba- 
diah 2 , Thomas 1 .) b. probably in Wethersfield, Conn., abt. 
1696; came to East Haddam, Conn., with his parents abt. 
1700; m. 14 Sept. 1721, Ruth Cone; she was adm. to ch. at 
East Haddam, 22 Sept. 1723; he was adm. 11 July, 1731. 
No record of his death found. 

In October 1733, a new parish was formed in the 
eastern part of East Haddam, called Milling ton, and at a 
subsequent meeting of the parish the following record 
appears upon the minutes. "At a society meeting warned 
according to direction of ye law, to be holden on ye third day 
of December, Anno Domini, 1733, at ye mansion house of 
Jonathan Chapman, in ye town of Haddam, John Buckley 
was chosen moderator of said meeting, and James Cone was 
chosen Clerk, and sworn to a faithful discharge of his office 
by John Buckley, Justice of the peace; and Samuel Emmons, 
Samuel Olmsted and Matthias Fuller, were chosen society 
committee." 

Samuel Emmons and Daniel Gates were elected as the 
first deacons of the Millington Church, in October 1736; and 
Dea. Emmons as agent for the parish, petitioned the General 
Assembly in Oct. 1737; "That a tax of one penny an acre 
be assessed upon all unimproved lands within the said parish, 
in order to help settle and support a minister."

Rev. Nathanael Emmons, D. D., graduated at Yale 
College 1767, an A. M., at Dartmouth College 1786; with 
the degree of D. D., in 1798. He professed religion in 1 769, 
and commenced the study of theology with Rev. Nathan 
Strong of Coventry, Conn., and completed the usual course 
with Rev. John Smalley, D. D., of Berlin. He was licensed 
by the Hartford South Association, 3 Oct., 1769; ordained 
over the church in Franklin, Mass., 21 April, 1773, having 
been hired to supply the pulpit from the 14th of December 
preceeding. 



24 THE EMMONS FAMILY FIFTH GENERATION 

Discouraged by the little apparent fruit of his labors, 
he twice asked a dismission, viz: January 1781, and May 
1784, which were most wisely refused by his attached people. 

On May 13th, 1827, he was seized with faintness while 
in the middle of his sermon, and was carried to his house. 
He so far recovered as to finish his sermon on the following- 
Sabbath; but this was the last sermon he preached. The 
second Sabbath following,— May 27, 1827,— he sent a note 
resigning his pastoral office, and requested that a meeting 
be called immediately to provide for a supply of the pulpit. 
Though speedily recovering his former vigor, he would not 
recall his determination, meaning he said, "to retire while 
he had sense enough to do it." 

He died on the 23d day of September, 1840, in the 96th 
year of his age, and the 68th from the commencement of 
his ministry in Franklin. A granite pyramid, on a granite 
base, is raised to his memory in the center of Franklin 
Common, and bears this inscription: — 

N. EMMONS, D. D. 
Aged 96. 

Mr. G. Hall, in 'Homes of the Town of Sutton, Mass.' 
says : — 

"Dr. Emmons, was not a very large man, and wore his small clothes 
and three cornered hat, as long as he lived. 

"When President Jackson visited New England, he went to launton, 
and Dr Kmmons in company with the celebrated surgeon, Dr. Miller, went 
to see the President As they drove into the village, the boys saw his quaintly 
antique style, and thought he must be Gen. Jackson; so they followed him 
through the streets vociferously cheering him as President of the United 
Stiles'- at every cheer the crowd increased, and all supposed Jackson had 
arrived. They had mistaken an eminent divine for a great warrior." 

With all his distinction as a theologian, he was a per- 
fect child in many things; as shown in the following incidents 
given by Mr. Hall. 

"After he married his third wife,— Mrs. Mills,— some of her lady friends 
went from Sutton to visit her. His man was away at the time, so they asked 
the Dr. to harness their horse; he tried to do it, but did not know how to put 
on the bridle, so Mrs. Tennev had to do it herself. 

"IP- had an old horse that lie had owned lor several years; he drove it 
into Boston, and had it put up at a hotel stable; when he was ready to leave, 
he went t<> his carriage and ordered his horse harnessed to it, but the hostler 
had put the wrong number on his bridle, so he harnessed the wrong horse, 
and one varying much in color from his own, vet he never discovered the 
difference until a neighbor in Franklin asked him if he had been swapping 
horses" when he indignantly replied -'I never did such a thing in my life;' 



THE EMMONS FAMILY FIFTH GENERATION 25 

'Well,' said the neighbor, 'that is m>t the one yon went away with at any 
rate.' 'It is the horse that I have owned for years.' 'No Sir,' said the 
neighbor. 'Well then ask Tom.' So the matter was referred to his man, 
who went immediately to Boston to swap horses for the learned doctor." 

(The author has in his possession a relic, which he prizes very highly; 
it being a two page autograph letter, of the Rev. Nathaniel Emmons, D. D. 
It was written at Franklin, December 20th, 1808; and addressed to the Rev. 
Aaron Hall, Keene; and forwarded by the hand of Deacon Kingsbury.)

During the years from 1757 to 1760, several families 
removed from East Haddam, Conn., and settled some in 
Hartland, Litchfield Co.; some in Berkshire Co., Mass.; 
while others went to Vermont and the State of New York. 
Among those who thus removed, was Mr. Emmons, who 
settled near Hartford, Conn., afterwards residing at Bark- 
hamstead near Hartland, in the same state. 

In August 1767, they made their relatives at East 
Haddam a visit, and took the occasion to have their children 
— four in number — baptized in their old church home.

[87] THOMAS EMMONS 5 , (Benjamin 4 , Benj. 3 , 
Benj. 2 , Thomas 1 ) rope-maker; s. of Benjamin Emmons and 
Mary Williams; b. probably at Dorchester, Mass., in 1736. 

Our knowledge of Thomas is confined to the records as 
they appear on file No. 14,386, in the Probate Court, Boston. 
It there appears that Thomas Emmons late of Boston, rope- 
maker, died intestate, and administration was on Feb. 28th, 
1769 granted to Mary Emmons, widow, who gave a bond 
with Benjamin Emmons, trader, and Joshua Emmons, tin 
plate worker, of Boston, sureties. 

In the account of the administratrix, appears the 
following item: "To allowance made the widow for bring- 
ing up four children, one of which was born after the death 
of her husband, and the eldest six years old at that time." 

A bond filed with the papers in this case, for the pay- 
ment of the proceeds of the partition of a piece of real 
estate, speaks of the widow of the deceased, as Mary, and 
the children, Benjamin, Thomas, 'Polly and Sally.' There 
are receipts attached to this bond, by which it appears that 
the mother Mary had died, and her interest was paid to the 
children, and these receipts are signed, one by Thomas 
Emmons, one by Sally Bean and Francis Bean, one by Mary 
E. Fuller, and one by Benjamin Emmons. Guardians were 
appointed for the children in 1779, the papers filed being 
No. 16,961 to No. 16,964, inclusive.

He is mentioned in his father's Will, made in 1774; as 
was also his daughter Sarah.

[92] NATHANIEL EMMONS 5 , (Jacob 4 , Jacob 3 , Jo- 
seph 2 , Thomas 1 .) s. of Jacob Emmons and Mary Williams; 
b. Boston, 15 April, 1731. 

His name appears on several pay rolls, for service in the 
'War of the Revolution': viz: — As a private in Lieut. Col. 
Jabez Hatch Regt. Boston; with a detachment commanded 
by Maj. Andrew Symmes; was drafted to serve five weeks 
guarding stores at, and about Boston, under Maj. Gen. 
Heath by order of Council of May 12th, 1777; also in Capt. 
Elias Parkman's detachment, drafted to serve as guards; 
also on pay roll for the same duty, dated Boston, Oct. 5, 
1778, for which he was engaged July 2, 1778, and dis- 
charged July 17, 1778. 

[93] JACOB, (bro. of Nathaniel) b. Boston, 12 Nov. 
1732. 

Although his name appears in several transactions in 
Boston, we have been unable to trace his genealogy. We 
learn, as stated in the 'Boston Records', that 

"On March 1st, 1764, Information was given the Selectmen by Mr 
Jacob Emmons living in Paddy's Alley, that a Child of his was taken with the 
Small Pox. As he would not consent to its being removed, — being an Infant 
in the Cradle — a Flag was ordered to be put out, and Mr. Wales appointed 
a Guard for said House. 

On March 13, 1770: "The Petition of Mr. Jacob Emmons praying the 
Town would make him a grant of Money, for his Land taken from him by a 
new Street thro his Land in Paddy's Alley, Was read and a Committee ap- 
pointed to consider the Petition and Report. 

"Reported varbally: — That in their Opinion Mr. Emmons had not 
pursued the steps of the Law, in making his Petition, and that he have leave 
to withdraw the same." 

His petition was again presented May 7th, 1771, and 
accepted; but no allowance voted him, and after bringing 
it before the Selectmen at each annual meeting, until March 
5, 1774; after considerable debate, "The Question was put: 
Whether the Town will sustain the Petition. Passed in the 
Negative", they declaring that the sum of five pounds paid 
him, and five pounds paid to Thomas Emmons at the time 
of the widening of the street was sufficient. 

Owing to the refusal of the town to pay what he 
thought to be a suitable compensation for his land, he on 
Aug. 25, 1772, began a suit against the workmen who 



THE EMMONS FAMILY FIFTH GENERATION 



2 9 



pulled down his outside chimnies, by order of the Select- 
men, in order to widen the street, which resulted in a non- 
suit. 

Jacob Emmons, Jr., was one of twelve Jurors who sat 
on the inquest of one Michael Johnson, who was murdered 
in the Boston massacre, by the soldiers of Kin? George III 
on March 5th, 1770. 

He served as a private in Capt. Stetson's company, of 
Maj. Edward Proctor's detachment of militia; was de- 
tached for service as guard in and about Boston, under Maj. 
Gen. Heath, Dec. 10, 1777, and was discharged March, 1 
1778. 



[96] JOHN, (bro. of Jacob) b. Boston, 11 Oct. 1738; 
m. his wife Mary, abt. 1761. He with his brother Nathaniel,' 
attended the public school under Samuel Holyoke master, 
in 1753, to learn writing and arithmetic. He with others 
signed an enlistment agreement dated Boston 22d, July 
1780, in which they engaged themselves to serve in the 
militia under Brig. Gen. John Fellows for the term of three 
months from the time of their arrival at the place of ren- 
dezvous.

[Ill] ERASTUS, (bro. of Williams) b. Franklin, Mass., 
5 Aug., 1787; d. there 3 Jan., 1823. 

His funeral sermon was preached by his father, Dr. 

Emmons of Franklin, and as a sample of the Rev. Doctor's 

Theology, we quote from a clipping published in 'The 

Boston Transcript' under the heading "True to His Awful 

Creed." 

" Erastus Emmons was a fine young man, deservedly beloved by all 
who knew him. He had declined highly flattering and attractive offers to 
engage in business in Boston, feeling it his duty to remain in Franklin and 
care personally for the comfort of his aged parents in their declining years. 
But this dutiful and devoted son, good citizen and faithful friend, had never 
experienced religion, and thereby gained admission into the fold of the elect. 
He died after a brief illness, and Dr. Emmons, true to the dogma he had been 
preaching for so many years, held up the dreadful fate that he believed had 
become the portion of his impenitent son, as a warning to the young and 



34 TH E EMMONS FAMILY 



SIXTH GENERATION 



thoughtless of his congregation. To quote a single sentence of this funeral 
discourse : 

"He has lived, blinded by sin, and wholly given over to the vanities 
of the world, and his voice, which once sounded pleasant in your ears, now 
calls in accents of woe from the dread abyss, for you to be wiser and better 
than he was, and to seize hold of life eternal." 

The sermon created a profound sensation even in those 
times when such preaching was common. Dr. Emmons' 
son-in-law and biographer, the Rev. Jacob Ide, D. D., says 
of it, that " it was preached with a sublime disinterestedness 
than that of a Roman father."

He went from Connecticut, to what is now Stephen- 
town, N. Y., about 1789 and settled on lands leased of 
Stephen Van Rensselaer. In 1795 he leased lands in the 
town of Nassau, which he purchased by deed dated Nov. 
14, 1798. 

In the spring of 1804 he removed with his family to 
Brewerton, Onondaga Co., N. Y., settling on the south side 
of the Onondaga River — now Oneida — opposite the site of 
'Old Fort Brewerton'. By a deed dated April 12, 1808, he 
purchased 500 acres on lot 9 town of Cicero, near Brewerton, 
and by deed of Jan. 15, 1814, he purchased 111 acres more; 
thus comprising the whole acreage of Military lot No. 9, 
with the exception of one acre in the northeast corner. A 
goodly portion of the first purchase has remained in his fam- 
ily, and is occupied by his descendants at the present time. 

In 1811 he removed to the town of Lafayette, — then a 
part of the town of Pompey — Onondaga county; where, by 
deed of Sept. 2, 1813, he purchased 50 acres on Military lot 
No. 89. Returning to Brewerton in 1813, he conducted a 
tavern ; also erected and operated a ferry across the river at 
the outlet of Oneida Lake, which he and his sons as his suc- 
cessors, continued to operate until the first bridge was 
erected in 1824. 



36 THE EMMONS FAMILY SIXTH GENERATION 

In 1822 he returned to Lafayette, purchased an addi- 
tion to his first 50 acres, on which he continued to reside 
until his decease in 1835. His death was the result of a 
kick from a colt. 

In the cemetery just south of the village of Lafayette, 
at the apex of a very conspicuous elevation, there stands 
facing the rising sun, a marble slab, upon which is chiselled 
a weeping willow; beneath this, an urn; and underneath, 
the following inscription: — 

"To the memory of 

Jonathan Emmons. 

A Patriot of the Revolution, 

who after a long life 

of usefulness 

died in the triumph of 

faith Dec. 9, 1835, aged 74 Y'rs., 

leaving a large family and a 

disconsolate widow to mourn 

his loss. 

In him, the poor lost a 

Friend." 

His funeral was delayed until the fourth day after his 
decease, by reason of a heavy storm of snow, which fell to 
the depth of four feet; yet, fifteen of his seventeen surviving 
children were present at his grave. One of the absent ones 
was in Canada, the other in Pennsylvania. 

He was enrolled as a private in Capt. Elijah Chapman's 
Light Infantry, 5th Conn. Regt., in July 1780; was under 
Col. Phillip B. Bradley from July 1st, to Dec. 16th, 1780; 
also under Col. Benjamin H. Hutchin's Hartland company,

Seventh Generation 

[138] ICHABOD EMMONS 7 , (Noadiah 6 , Ebenezer 5 , 
Samuel 4 , Samuel 3 , Obadiah 2 , Thomas 1 .) blacksmith; b. 
East Haddam, Conn., 18 March, 1778; m. 9 Dec, 1799, 
Mindwell, dau. of David Mack and Mary Talcott; b. Middle- 
field, Mass., 6 Sept., 1779; she d. 23 June, 1862; he d. Hins- 
dale, Mass., 26 April, 1839. 

Maj. Ichabod, s. of Noadiah Emmons and Elizabeth 
Brainard, was the eldest of a family of eight children. 
When a young man he went to Middlefield, Mass., to learn 
the trade of a blacksmith, where he became acquainted with 
Mindwell Mack, a daughter of David Mack, a prominent 
man of that town, which resulted in their marriage. 

After his marriage he returned to East Haddam, Conn., 
the place of his nativity, where he remained about two 
years, and again returning to Massachusetts, purchased a 
farm in Hinsdale, Berkshire county. This farm was located 
on the turnpike road from Boston to Albany, and being 
rather a poor one, he found it necessary to connect his trade 
of a blacksmith with that of farming, in order to support 
his wife and family of six children. 

It is said of him that he was an indefatigable worker, 
and could often be heard hammering at his forge through 
the long hours of the night, shoeing horses or fashioning 
farming implements for the surrounding country. 

In this connection the following incident is related, for 
the truth of which we should be unwilling to vouch. 

' That one day thinking to make a plowshare, he heated 
and hammered the iron until it became too small for his 
pattern, so he thought it would make a horse-shoe; it soon 
became too small for that, but thought it would make a 
nail, and this too was spoiled, when a bright idea entered 
his brain, that it would make a first class fizzle, and striking 
it with his hammer, the sparks flew and the fizzle was made." 
In 1819 he erected a fine brick mansion on his farm, in 
which he lived until his death. This was for many years 



42 THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 

the finest dwelling in town, and remained in possession of 
the family until 1901, when it passed out of their possession 
and was remodeled by the addition of a mansard roof and 
other modern improvements, and converted into a popular 
summer hotel, bearing the name of "Shady Villa." 

The Major was a man possessing a keen sense of humor, 
and was one of the best known wags of Western Massa- 
chusetts. While in the State Legislature where he repre- 
sented his town for several terms, he was noted for his short, 
crispv and witty sayings, and was a welcome guest at many 
social functions held in Boston during his legislative career. 

At one of its sessions he introduced a Bill entitled " An 
Act to Tax Ministers and Sheep." At another, when a 
change of Administration had taken place, he was accosted 
by a leading Democrat, who asked "why the Major's son 
Monroe, should be retained any longer as postmaster at 
Hinsdale?" replied; "because there is only one Democrat 
in the town, and he cannot write his own name." 

He went to see the laying of the corner-stone of Bunker 
Hill Monument, and previous to the ceremony, joined the 
Monumental Association, each member of which, received a 
parchment representation of the monument. Being very 
desirous of hearing Daniel Webster, who was to be the 
'Speaker of the Day,' he wished to enter the enclosure sur- 
rounding the speaker's stand, to which only the ladies and 
officials were admitted. Rolling up his parchment to repre- 
sent an official scroll, he marched unconcernedly past the 
guard, who undoubtedly took him for an official, and secured 
a seat near the speaker. When the truck, drawn by four 
beautiful horses, approached, bringing the box in which 
wire the mementos to be placed in the stone, Maj. Emmons 
stepped forward, lifted the box from the truck, placed it in 
position, and stepped aside, leaving the Free Masons to 
carry out their programme. 

The title of Major was given him as an officer in one of 
the militia regiments of Berkshire county.

was stationed at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, from whence 
he intended to start for the east, but waited a short time 
for the service of a comrade to expire, who was to accompany 
him home. They set out together for East Haddam, where 
the comrade arrived, but without Jonathan, and of whom 
he never gave any satisfactory account. This was the last 
knowledge any of his relatives had of him.

tinued to grow worse until he died.

He resided in Alps, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., for six years 
after his marriage in 1 804 ; removed to the town of Pompey 
(now Lafayette), Onondaga Co., N. Y., in 1810; moved to 
Brewerton, town of Cicero, in the same county in 1811; re- 
turned to Lafayette in 1814; and again returned to the 
town of Cicero, where he purchased by deed dated Dec. 13, 
1820, one hundred acres of land located on lots No. 65-66 
on which he erected and was proprietor of a log tavern. 
In 1823 he returned to Brewerton and kept the tavern there; 
also erected, and with his son Asa U. Emmons, conducted 
a general store from 1826 to 1830. During the winter of 
the latter year, his wife while on a visit to their former 
home in Alps, was taken sick and died there, by reason of 
which, he remained in Alps until after his second marriage, 
her death, and for a time after his third wedding. This, 
proving to be very uncongenial, they separated, and he 
returned to Brewerton, where he resided until after her 
death. 

In 1849 he began the erection of the "Fort Brewerton 
House," located near the site of "Old Fort Brewerton" 
in Oswego Co., N. Y. 

In 1850, he migrated to Antioch, 111., where he married 
his 4th wife, and from thence, removed to Harpersfield, 
Ohio, in 1857, where he died in 1863, aged 80. His widow 
d. 27 Jan., 1904, aged 76.

Brainard, a youth of seventeen, accompanied his 
parents from Nassau to Brewerton, N. Y., in 1804, and 
assisted his father in various duties incident to the life of a 
pioneer. 

At the close of the war of 1812-15, he went to Canada, 
and there married his first wife — a German girl — and settled 
in the Niagara district, near Wellandsport, Welland county. 
After the death of his wife in 1824, he returned to Brewerton, 
and there married again. In 1828 he returned to his farm 
in Canada, where he resided until the Canada rebellion in 
1838, when, rather than be conscripted, he rented his farm 
and removed to Meadsville, Crawford Co., Pa., where his 
daughter Mary had her home. Remaining here five years, 
he returned to Canada, and in March 1856, emigrated to 
Sandwich, 111., where in company with his son Theodore, 
they erected a brick hotel, which was called the ' Emmons 
House.' He made Sandwich his home until his decease in 
1862, aged 75. 

It is said of him; "That he was a quiet man in all his 
ways, both in planning and executing, and was possessed 
with a quiet sense of humor."

Although it lias passed through many hands, since his 
decease in 1844, it still retains the name of the Hoskins' 
farm. Near its south-east corner is what is known as the 
Hoskins' cemetery, in which himself and wife, with many of 
the Emmons relatives are interred.

When a lad of ten years, Samuel came with his father's 
family to Brewerton, N. Y. When he had passed his 
fifteenth year, he was apprenticed to Mr. David Frink— a 
Quaker— residing in Manlius, N. Y., to learn the trade of a 
tanner and currier. He worked at the trade until Novem- 
ber, 1812, when he joined a troop raised in Manlius for the 
defence of the frontier against the British, and proceeded 
with them to Sacket's Harbor, where he was stationed for 
three or four months. For this service he was granted a 
pension of eight dollars per month, from May 1878, until his 
decease. He then returned to his father's home in Christian 
Hollow, in the town of Lafayette, and labored on the farm 
until he married his first wife. By a deed of June 28, 1819, 
he purchased of his father 100 acres on lot No. 9, town of 
Cicero, about one mile south-west of Brewerton. Ten 
years later by deed of April 3, 1829, he added 47 acres to his 
former purchase. Upon this farm his children were born; 
on it his wife Hannah died; to it he brought his second wife; 
and here, after nearly one hundred years of active life he 
passed away. 

He retained his physical and mental faculties in a 
remarkable degree, up to his 98th year, and to him the 
author is indebted for much information concerning the 
history of his ancestry, and their descendants.

He had SO acres of land lying on the south shore of the 
Oneida River, in the extreme north-west corner of the town 
of Cicero, which he bought of his father in 1825. He did 
not improve his land to any extent, but occupied his time 
in hunting, fishing and trapping. He claimed to have been 
the first inventor of the revolver pistol, a claim which 
appears to have been well substantiated, but by reason of 
his death shortly after, his claim was never pressed. He 
died intestate, leaving a widow and seven minor children.

The following sketch was written by her grand-daughter 
Miss Belle L. Ladd:- 

" My grand-mother Martha's earlier years were passed 
in the quiet seclusion of her parent's home. Her education 
was fair as the limited privileges of that early day would 
permit. Many times in her girlhood days, would she ride 
unaccompanied, from her home in Lafayette to Brewerton, 
a distance of twenty-eight miles, on horse-back, to make 
her brothers a visit, the corduroy road for many a mile 
being bordered on either hand by the sombre shade of the 
primeval forest . That part of the way by her most dreaded, 
was that which leads from the Onondaga's Castle, through 
the swamp which at that time occupied what is now a large 
part of the City of Syracuse, to the village of Salina. 

"In 1834, she married George Down, a young English 
farmer, and settled down during the succeeding ten years, 
to the enjoyments of a quiet home, and the responsibilities 
of motherhood. They then purchased a farm on the north 
shore of the Oneida river, one mile west of Brewerton, where 
another son and daughter was born to them, and where the 
liist sad calamity came to mar their happiness, in the death 
of one of their twin daughters, in her eighteenth year, after 
a brief illness of five days with brain fever. In less than 
seven weeks after her death, the father joined her on the 



THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 57 

other shore. The twin sister was also stricken with the 
same disease, and after lingering for three months, she too, 
was united with the others in a land where sickness and 
death are unknown. 

" The widow's cup of sorrow was not yet full ; for in the 
succeeding winter, she was called upon to part with her 
youngest child, the pet daughter of the family, only five 
years of age. 

"All the energy and business tact, hitherto lying 
dormant, was by the force of circumstances brought to the 
front, and by her methodical and energetic management, 
she not only raised her remaining children to be useful 
members of society, but accumulated for her and them a 
fair portion of this world's goods. 

"In 1875 she married James McKinley, an estimable 
gentleman of Cicero, N. Y., with whom she lived until his 
decease in 1882, when she returned to Brewerton, where she 
died August 9th, 1892, aged 79; retaining her mental 
faculties to the last. 

"Her funeral obsequies were held in the 'Church of 
Christ' at Brewerton, of which she had been a member for 
nearly forty years. She rests side by side with her departed 
loved ones, in Riverside Cemetery, by the shore of the 
beautiful Oneida."

•' William Avery Emmons, the fifteenth child of Jona- 
than Emmons, was born in the town of Cicero, county of 
Onondaga, N. Y., March 20, 1815. While a child, his 
parents removed to Lafayette, his mother carrying him on 
horseback over a corduroy road where Syracuse now stands. 
Here his childhood and young manhood was spent upon the 
farm of his father, and in attending the nearest school. 

"On January 3d, 1839, he married Esther Blendena 
Mason, daughter of Jesse and Esther Mason, of Truxton, 
Cortland county, who were among the sturdy old stock of 
settlers of this county. They resided on a farm near the 
Mason homestead, where three children were born to them. 
In about 1847 they moved into a house near the home of his 
father, and later into his father's homestead, where four 
children were born. In about 1850 his health failed and he 
rented the farm, living in Tully two years, where the young- 
est son was born. In 1859 he bought a place in Onondaga 
Valley for the purpose of educating his large family, which 
now consisted of two sons and five daughters, one girl having 
died in infancy. 

"They all received a good education at the Onondaga 
Academy, before scattering to the world's work. After 
some years, he bought a large farm among the beautiful 
Tully lakes, and removed thither, but again returned to the 
Valley, where for a number of years he carried on a garden 
farm, always driving to Syracuse on Sunday with his family 
to attend the Church of Christ, on East Onondaga Street. 

"After most of his children were married, he again 
bought a farm in Pompey, remaining until the last child 
was gone, when he and his wife removed to the village of 
Manlius, where he spent the last years of his active life. 
Here in March 4th, 18S2, he died,leaving his wife and seven 
children to mourn the loss of a wise and loving husband and 
father; one with whom no sacrifice was to great to make for 
the advancement of his children in education and religious 
privileges; one who had brought up his children in the 
'nurture and admonition of the Lord.' In this he was 
nobly aided by the mother, who was a rare woman. 'Their 
children rise up and call them blessed'."

In the beautiful cemetery near the village of Lafayette, 
there stands a fine marble slab, upon which is represented a 
weeping willow tree; beneath it a monument with die and 
monolith; standing beside which, is the figure of a man 
with one hand to his eyes as if weeping. Beneath the whole, 
is the following inscription: — 

"Beneath this monument 

lies all that could die of 

EmelinE S. 

wife of 

Charles Nichols, 

and her infant. 

She died Feb. 10, 1841, 

aged 22 years & 20 days." 

"I stand among the dark gray stones

Of her, I loved most dear."

60 THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 

The following is copied from The History of Kane 
County, 111.: 

' Leonidas 2. Baker, Aurora, 111., was born in Washing- 
ton Co., X. Y., December 24th, 1S17; when eight years old, 
his father disposed of his farm, and moved to Cortland 
County. Leonidas remained on the old homestead until 
I s I 1 ; he acquired a good common school education through 
his own efforts, and at seventeen years of age commenced 
teaching in the district school, and taught for seven years. 
In is 11 he started in the mercantile business, and was 
very successful; in 1843 he married Miss Nancy A. Emmons 
at Lafayette, Onondaga Co., N. Y. ; in the spring of 1844 he 
came to Illinois, starting on the 23d day of May and reach- 
in- Chicago on the 23d day of June. They located three 
miles west of Aurora, here he bought 160 acres; for twenty 
years he followed farming; the first were years of hardship 
and toil, but time brought him a competence. 

" Mr. Baker was never a politician, and never ran for 
office. He was a member of the Church of Christ, and a 
truly Christian man. In 1865 he went to Minnesota for his 
health; he returned in 1867, and became book-keeper for 
F. B. Rice, a hardware merchant. He continued in his 
employ for three and a half years. For many years he 
suffered with Hay Asthma, and in INTO was attacked with 
Typhoid Pneumonia, which resulted fatally, and after a 
short illness he was laid at rest in the beautiful cemetery of 
Spring Lake. Thus passed away a man whom all respected; 
six children were born, of whom two are living, the others 
dying in infancy."

THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 6 1 

Mrs. Hoyt was the youngest of her father's eighteen 
children, and the ninth by his second wife. Her father died 
when she was eleven years of age; she attended the public 
school and the academy at Lafayette; the death of her 
mother m 1841, obliged her to take upon herself the duties 
of a housekeeper for an aged and crippled relative, and the 
care of an afflicted sister, which she faithfully performed 
until her marriage in 1848. In the autumn of that year 
they removed to Illinois, and located on a farm near Aurora 
forty miles south-west of Chicago, where they resided seven 
years. 

Mr. Nichols having accumulated a competency retired 
from active labor, rented his farm and moved into the 
village of Aurora, where he erected for himself a new and 
beautiful residence, which he completed and occupied in 
June 1855. He was not destined to enjoy this home for 
only a short time, for on the 10th day of the following 
November, he died of typhoid fever. 

In 1857 the widow married Dr. Hoyt, a dentist, and 
the son of a Congregational minister of Vermont The 
Dr. being of a roving disposition, their life for a few years 
was very unsettled, until 1862 when they separated, and 
lor several years she has had no knowledge of him and 
believes him dead. 

In 1872 she went to live with her eldest daughter and 
in 1877 accompanied her to Kansas, settling near Lebo in 
the southern part of Osage county, where she still resides 
and in her 81st year still follows out her motto: "It is 
better to wear out than rust out." 

The following, penned by her own hand, was sent the 
author in answer to questions regarding her father's record 
as a soldier of the Revolution: 

.,„ „ Lebo, Oct. 12, 1902 

"Mr. E. N. Emmons, 

My dear nephew: 

"I am surprised that a great grandson of my Father does not know that 
he was a revolutionary Soldier. I remember of his going to Pennsylvania 
to get witnesses to prove that he was a soldier. My mind's eye goes back to 
that day when pa sat in his gig and see just how he looked He drove a 
beautiful bay; she was ready to start and did not want to wait for an V zood- 
byes. & 



62 THE EMMONS FAMILY SEVENTH GENERATION 

•• I suppose he got whal he went after for he surely got a pension a year 
or two before he died; said he wish he hadn't, for it was more trouble than 
il was worth. 

"Father was only 16 when lie enlisted. I do not know what year of 
the war it was, but think he remained in the army until the close 
of the war. I believe Father was 5 feet 7 inches in height, black hair 
one black eve and one blue one. All the children have black eyes as far as 
I know. Father served in Colonel Hutchen's Connecticut militia; he served 
under Gen. Lafayette, and was introduced to him as one of his men in about 
the year L824 or 1826; he was at one time out of sight of land 3 months, etc.''

Emmons of North Evans, N. Y. 

"My father resided at Christian Hollow (now Tully 
Valley,) N. Y., until about 1828, when he went to Ohio and 
Michigan — then spoken of as the far west — in search of a 
home; not finding anything to suit, he returned to Chautau- 
qua Co., N. Y., and purchased a heavily timbered tract of 
wild land, and for two years was preparing a 'cage for the

bird.' He found his bird in the vicinity of New York Mills; 
returning after his marriage to his new home in the town of 
Arkwright. Ten children were born to them here. In 1855 
his wife died, full of the Christian's faith; she being a zealous 
member of the M. E. Church. 

"After marrying his second wife in 1857, he sold the 
old homestead to his two eldest sons, and removed to Silver 
Creek in the same county, and bought a small farm on 
which he resided until the fall of 18G5 when he sold out and 
purchased a farm near Angola, where he lived five years; 
then sold again and settled on a farm at North Evans, Erie 
Co., N. Y., upon which he staid seven years, and then re- 
tired from active life, making his home with his son Charles 
at the latter place, until his death in 1890, and where his 
widow died in 1897."

Deacon Emmons is the last living representative of a 
family of eleven children; a life long resident of his native 
town; a member of the Baptist Church, for fifty years, 
having for more than twenty held the office of a deacon. 

He is a direct descendant, on his mother's side, of 
Richard Ely, one of the early settlers of Connecticut, who 
married in 1664, a sister of Colonel Fenwick, of whom the 
American Cyclopaedia treats as follows: — 

"George Fenwick, proprietor of part of Connecticut, died in 1657. He 
came to America in 1636 to take charge of the plantation of Saybrook, so 
called after Lords Say and Brook, who with others had in 1632 procured a 
patent for the territory from Robert, earl of Warwick. Returning to Eng- 
land, he came back again in 1639, and from that time, as one of the patentees 
and agent for the others, superintended and governed the settlement Say- 
brook till 1644, when he sold its jurisdiction and territory to the Connecticut 
colony. He afterward returned to England, where he became a colonel in 
the parliamentary army, and was appointed one of the judges of Charles I."

Mr. Emmons came to Brewerton, N. Y., with his par- 
ents in the spring of 1810. In 1814 they removed to La- 
fayette, N. Y. Returning to Brewerton in 1821, he assisted 



80 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 

his father in the tavern there, and in running the ferry across 
the Oneida river, until the erection of the first bridge in 1824. 

After his marriage in 1826, he purchased by deed of 
June 24, 1827, the old 'Brewerton Stand' as it was then 
called in which he resided a year, and then erected a new 
tavern on the site of the present 'Washburn House'; this he 
sold to Mr. Wells Crumb, the first Post-master at Brewerton, 
and purchased 59 acres of Mr. David Maxwell, one mile 
south of the river, on which he resided six years, and sold it 
Nov. 27, 1835, to Wm. Sadler, and bought what is known as 
the John Waterbury farm, two miles south-west of Central 
Square, Oswego county. Shortly after, he sold this and 
entered the mercantile trade in Caughdenoy, where he con- 
tinued in business until he migrated to Antioch, 111., in 1842. 
He settled on a farm of 440 acres near that village, where he 
resided twenty-six years, when he moved into the village 
and entered into partnership with his eldest son, who was 
conducting a general store, which he continued until he 
retired from active life in 1887. 

For upwards of sixty years he was a faithful and de- 
voted Christian, and with his wife was a member of the 
Church of Christ at Antioch, serving for many years as an 
elder of the church, and preaching for the congregation 
whenever they were without a settled pastor. In a letter 
written January 5th, 1878, he writes of his conversion to 
Christianity as follows: — 

"In 1830 or 31 I attended a revival or protracted meeting of the Pres- 
byterians; became interested; was converted, sprinkled, and joined that 
denomination I walked with them in good faith until my first child was 
to be- baptized, then I began to ask questions on the subject of infant bap- 
tism nunc of which were satisfactorily answered. I could not understand 
it until a few years after, the sect which 'was everywhere spoken against 
came into our vicinity in the persons of Elders J. J. Moss A. Hayden Wilcox 
and others, teaching the Gospel in its primitive purity and simplicity. Alex- 
ander Campbell, the great modern reformer of Bethany W. Va. preached 
at Cicero four miles from Brewerton, where I then resided, and 1 went to 
hear him I heard, 1 believed, I obeyed the Lord's command, by being 
immersed into the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I was buried 
by baptism in the waters of Oneida bake at South Bay, in the year 1834; 
and from thai time, have gone on my way rejoicing, nothing doubting. 

In the same letter as above, he tells of a trip taken by 
him overland to California in 1850. He says:- 

"On the 25th day of March, 1850, I left my home in Antioch, 111., and 
started on a trip of two thousand five hundred miles, traveling with a horse 



THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 8 1 

team to California. I passed through the Great American Desert, and over 
the Rocky Mountains; the longest journey ever undertaken with a wagon 
drawn by horses in one direction through a country where for two thousand 
miles, there were no roads or settlements except those made by the traveler. 
"We went through without loss of either man or beast. We arrived 
at our destination the 15th of July. I gathered up about $500, in gold dust, 
and the last of November started for home. I came back by water around 
the Cape to New York, arriving home the 1st of February, 1851; was very 
glad to get home, also was glad that I went."

[290] ASA UPHAM EMMONS, (bro. of Myron) mer- 
chant; b. Nassau, N. Y., 8 June, 1808; m. 24 Jan., 1828, 
Anna, dau. of Dr. Chester Smedley and Anna Landon; b. 
Litchfield, Conn., 28 Aug., 1808, d. Syracuse, N. Y., 12 
Dec, 1895, age 87; he d. Brewerton, N. Y., 18 June, 1864, 
age 56. 

When about two years of age, he was brought by his 
parents from Rensselaer Co. to Brewerton, N. Y., and with 
the exception of about five years — while a lad — passed his 
life in that village. 

He assisted his father in running a ferry across the out- 
let at Brewerton until a bridge was erected in 1824, and then 
attended the toll-gate for a time. In 1829, in company 
with his father, he opened a store, which they conducted 
until 1834. He then followed fishing, hunting and trapping 
for several years, at which business he proved very suc- 
cessfull. In 1848 he again entered the mercantile trade in 
company with Mr. John B. Kathan, who sold out his in- 
terest in 1851 to Judge John L. Stevens, which continued 
until 1853, when the Judge retired from the firm and Mr. 
Emmons continued the business alone until 1855, when he 
sold out to Mr. G. R. Carter, who conducted it for three 
years and resold to him. In the fall of 1858 he took his 
two sons, — Edward N. and John W. — into partnership under 



82 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 

the firm name of A. U. Emmons & Sons, which continued 
until the summer of L863, when the eldest son bought out 
his brother and the firm became A. U. Emmons & Son, and 
as such, continued until the decease of the father in 1864. 

Mr. Emmons' education was limited, as the only facili- 
ties he had for attending school was that of one kept in a 
log house, by Deacon George Ramsay, who taught the first 
school in Brewerton. 

When a lad of ten or twelve he fell upon an axe injuring 
his left knee joint, from which he ever after walked with a 
slight limp, and by the aid of a cane. 

He was of a kind and sympathetic nature, and aboun- 
ded in benevolent deeds. In him the poor or the afflicted 
ever found a friend ready to help in their time of need. 
Although not a professed Christian, no person did more for 
the benefit of the churches in Brewerton than did he. In 
disposition he was always happy and jovial, and ever ready 
to engage in that which might afford fun or sport ; his motto 
as often expressed, being "laugh if you lose, and laugh if 
you win." In politics he belonged to the 'Old Whig' party, 
known as the 'Silver Grays', and was a great admirer of 
Henry Clay. When the two great parties were merged into 
the Democratic and Republican parties, he in a measure 
affiliated with the former. 

The following incident in his life we think worthy of 
being placed on record : — 

In the spring of 1826 he with several others were en- 
gaged in repairing the highway a short distance south of 
Brewerton, when Dr. Chester Smedley, accompanied by his 
wife and family of ten children passed by. They were 
entire strangers, and were on their way from Litchfield, 
Connecticut, to seek a new home in Oswego county. By 
questions asked and answered it was ascertained that the 
destination they sought was one mile north of the Oneida 
River. Among the Doctor's family were four very comely 
daughters and after the party had passed beyond hearing, 
Asa remarked to his companions that " that girl" — designat- 
ing the next to the eldest — "is my girl, and I am going to 
make her my wife." 

At this, his younger brother Orson, said, " if Ace marries 



THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 83 

that girl, I will marry such a one" —designating another of 
the daughters. They both made their words good, for Asa 
married Anna Smedley, on January 24th, 1828, and Orson 
married her sister Rachel, four years later. 

Asa's wife, or Aunt Ann as she was latterly designated, 
was naturally of a quiet and peaceful disposition; industrious 
and economical; a lover of home; and a faithful and zealous 
Christian. For upwards of sixty years she was a member 
of the Church of Christ; ever abounding in church work; 
and her home was known far and near, as the 'preacher's 
home.' As a mother, "her children rise up and call her 
blessed". After the death of her husband in 1864, she 
made her home alternately with her only daughter, and her 
eldest son, and at the home of the latter, in Syracuse, N .Y., 
she fell asleep, on the 12th day of December, 1895, in her 
88th year. 

A kind father; a loving Christian mother; side by side 
they rest, in the family plot in Riverside Cemetery, over- 
looking the blue waters of the beautiful Lake Oneida.

Soon after his birth his parents moved from Lafayette 
to Brewerton, remaining until 1815, when they returned to 
Lafayette, returning again to Brewerton in 1820, where he 
remained until his marriage in 1832. The following year 
they removed to Alps, Rensselaer county, N. Y., and pur- 
chased by deed of October 28, 1833, 89 acres of land upon 



84 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 

which he burned charcoal for the Troy market. In 1836 he 
returned to Brewerton and engaged in the manufacture of 
potash, and in boating. In 1846 he removed to Caughdenoy 
Oswego county, remaining until 1849; while there he, in 
connection with another party, erected the first hotel built 
in Caughdenoy; and was also engaged in potash making and 
as a merchant. In 1849 and 50 he with his father erected 
the first hotel, known as the 'Fort Brewerton House', near 
the site of the old fort at Brewerton. This hotel was 
burned in L865, and he sold his interest in the site to his 
brother Henry, and tended the toll gate and opened the 
draw for the Brewerton bridge for several years, occupying 
his spare time as a cobbler. He was an accomplished mu- 
sician with the snare drum, and his services were in much 
demand for excursions, picnics, &c.

His mother died when he was eleven years of age, and 
his father sent him to Brewerton to be cared for by his 
brother Asa U. Emmons with whom he resided from 
February 1831 to June 1835, when he returned to Alps and 
lived with his mother's relatives until his marriage with his 
cousin Sally M. Simmons in 1843. The seven or eight years 
following was spent in Alps, Troy and Brewerton, to the 
latter lie removed permanently December 9, 1851, and 
purchasing an interest in the new hotel erected by his father 
;i!id brother Orson, became its proprietor, which he con- 
tinued until it was burned in L865. Buying his brother's 
interest, he proceeded to rebuild, and completed the present 



THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 85 

'Fort Brewerton House' in 1867. He occupied it until 
after the death of his wife in 1895, when being in poor 
health and well advanced in years, he disposed of the 
property and took up his residence with his only daughter, 
expecting to be cared for by her. She lived only a short 
time after he came, and he was left a broken wreck, both 
physically and mentally, to the care of his nineteen year old 
grand-daughter, who faithfully discharged the onerous duty 
of caring for him in his senility, at a great sacrifice to her- 
self until his decease. 

Mr. Emmons held several minor positions during his 
life. He was appointed by Gov. John Young as highway 
inspector of Rensselaer county in 1847-8; was deputy 
sheriff of the same county in 1847-48 and 49; asst. door- 
keeper in the Assembly at Albany, session of 1849; boat 
inspector in Troy in 1850; and supervisor of the town of

Leaving there they tried several places in the states of 
Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Dakota, finally 
settling down on a farm near Shelburn, Ore., and are now 
running a large prune orchard.

The following obituary written by Eld. J. H. McChes- 
ney, was clipped from one of the daily papers: — 

"Hoskins: At the residence of his son Milard, in the town of Chester, 
Cyrenus P. Hoskins, May 9th, 1900, about one o'clock P. M., after a so- 
journ on earth of 80 years, 2 months and 21 days, of old age and its growing 
infirmities. 

"Deceased was born in the State of New York, where he was married 
to Miss Sophia J. Bortles. 

" Early in the fifties he settled in what is now called the town of Lincoln, 
where most of his children were born. 

"Two of his sons served in the Union Army in the War of the Rebellion. 
The remains of his wife and two children rest in the burying ground in the 
above town, where his body was laid at rest by the side of his companion. 
He was widely known and favorably so, throughout our county, having 
held many offices and discharged his duty faithfully. The religious element 
in him was but small; critical in observation of things, yet always in search 
of truth, both theoretical and practical, which he claimed to have found in 
the man, Christ Jesus. 



92 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 

"He passed away in full immortality, with a childlike, loving heart 
towards God and man', bidding the world goodby with sincere desire for its 
progress, future peace and happiness. He requested that little should be 
said of himself, — but wherein this short memorial fails to do him justice, 
the remembrance of his friends will compensate."

Mr. Emmons as a prominent Republican, has exercised 
a controlling influence over the political field of his native 
town of Cicero for many years, and through him, as much as 
any other, has it been classed as the banner town of repub- 
licanism in the county of Onondaga. Although he has 
never held a town office, his party has not been unmindful 
of his efforts in its behalf, and have conferred upon him 
such party gifts as he would accept. 

He was appointed Janitor of the Court House and Jail 
in 1861; a position which he held for eighteen years. Has 
also held the office of a Deputy Sheriff under Sheriffs Byron 
D. Benson, Jared C. Williams, Dewitt C. Toll, Win. Evans, 
David S. Cossitt, John J. Meldram, and Hector B. Johnson. 

He has several farms, and owns real estate in the City 
of Syracuse, N. Y., and in Washington, D. C. In appear- 
ance at the present time, he is as hale and hearty, as though 
he were only fifty, instead of seventy-seven years of age.

[362] ELMER JONATHAN, (bro. of Marion F.) book- 
keeper; b. Truxton, N. Y., 9 Feb., 1843; m. 15 Nov., 1876, 
Lillie Jane Hays, b. Savannah, O., 10 April, 1856; res. 
Denver, Col. 

Elmer's father having purchased the old homestead 
of his grandfather Jonathan in Lafayette, Onondaga Co., 
N. Y., it became his home from the age of three to sixteen. 
His education to this time was obtained at the old brown 
school house in the corner of Squire Hoyt's orchard a mile 
away. His father then removed to Onondaga Valley, that 
his children might attend the Academy at that place. 

At the age of nineteen, he with eighteen other young 
men of the Valley, enlisted in a company recruited mostly 
from students of the State Normal School at Albany, of 
which Consider H. Willett, a fellow student was 1st Sergt. 
Later, they were enrolled as Co. E. 44th Regt. N. Y. Inf. 
Vols., of Butterfield's Brigade, 5th Army Corps. 

The company joined the regiment shortly after the 
battle of Antietam, and near where it was fought. After 
being in the service seven months, while on the march to 
Fredericksburg, he was attacked with typhoid fever, which 
resulted in his discharge. 

He returned home, and during the next summer assisted 
his father on a farm in Preble. The following winter he 
was clerk in the store of Wra. Barrett in Preble. While 
here, through the influence of his intimate friend Jay D. 
Spaulding, he became a Republican, although his father was 
a Democrat ; but who afterward was a life long Republican. 

In the spring of 1865, with his friend Spaulding, he 
went to Ohio, and spent the summer at the oil fields. His 
friend was taken sick, and returning to Syracuse, N. Y., 
bought an interest in the firm of I. A. Thurber & Co., 
bakers and confectioners. He wrote Elmer, and engaged 
him as a book-keeper. He remained there nearly two 
years, when Spaulding sold out, and they both went west 
in search of land. They traveled on foot over a large 
portion of the southern part of Iowa, and finally purchased 
in the N. W. Township of Union Co., la. — now Spaulding 
township — thus becoming the first settlers in that treeless

township. Their ranche has been well improved and 
stocked to its fullest capacity. The railroad station of 
Spaulding, on a branch of the Burlington R. R., is at their 
door. 

Elmer was elected clerk of the Courts of Union county, 
and held the office eight years; residing at Afton the county 
seat. While here, he married his wife, a daughter of Dr. 
Thomas Hays, formerly of Savannah, Ohio. He removed 
to Ouray, Co., in 1889, where they owned some mining 
property, remaining a short time, and going to Denver, 
engaged in his present occupation as book-keeper for the 
Denver Fire Clay Co. 

Mr. Emmons in early life became a member of the 
Christian (Disciple) Church, to which all the members of 
his family belonged; is a thirty-third degree Mason; a 
charter member of Henry Keating Post, G. A. R., at Afton, 
la. ; a present member of Crocker Post, at Denver, Col. ; and 
is secretary and treasurer of the Altoona Mining Co., 
Denver, of which his friend Spaulding is president and 
manager.

and is interred in Walnut Grove Cemetery at that place. 

She became a member of the Christian Church at 
Tully, N. Y., when nine years of age, and later, of the Church 
of Christ at Syracuse, N. Y. In 1869 she removed to 
Adams Co., la., and joined the M. E. Church. She ever 
lived a devoted Christian life, and although a helpless in- 
valid for fifteen years previous to her decease, her faith 
never faltered, but sustained her to the end.

7 July, 1868, Maj. George H. Roach, b. Schoharie Co., N. Y., 
19 June, 1847. 

The following condensed extract, taken from a report 
made to the Adj. General of the Army, at Washington, D. C, 
by Maj. Roach, when home on a three months furlough from 
the Philippines, was dated at Fort McPherson, Ga., January 
30, 1903: 

"Sir: — In compliance with your request, I have the honor to state, 
that I enlisted at the age of sixteen years in Co. F., 26th Regt., 111. Vet. 
Vols., and was enrolled on the 29th day of February, 1864, to serve three 
years or during the war. 

"I joined my regiment at Scottsboro, Ala., shortly after, and in time 
to accompany it on the opening of Sherman's Atlanta Campaign. Was 
present with my regiment in all the marches, skirmishes and battles, which 
finally resulted in the capture of Atlanta; was engaged in the action of Gris- 
woldville, the siege of Savannah, and capture of Fort McAllister. After 
the fall of Savannah, was ordered to Beaufort, S. C, and at Port Royal Ferry, 
until the commencement of the northward march through the Carolinas; 
was hotly engaged in the battle of Bentonville; was at the capture of Raleigh, 
and left there May 1st, for Washington, via Richmond. Participated in 
the grand review at Washington; was ordered to Louisville, Ky., where the 
regiment was mustered out July 29, 1865. 

"Was recommended by my Colonel for a brevet commission of 1st 
Lieutenant; was appointed October 1st, 1873, 2nd Lieut, in the 17th U. S. 
Infantry, on the request of Hon. George Williams, Atty. -General in Grant's 
second term, etc." 

He was with Gen. Custer's expedition in the Black 
Hills in July 1874; serving with his regiment in the Dakotas 
from 1873 to 1886, when he was transferred to Fort D. A. 
Russell, Wyo.; served in the Pine Ridge Indian campaign 
of 1890-91, with the Leavenworth Cavalry Squadron; was 
given command of a section of Hotchkiss mountain guns 
January 1st, 1891. 

In the Spanish-Cuban war, the Major's regiment (the 
17th U. S. Inf.) was the second to reach Tampa. On the 
arrival of the ships on the coast of Cuba, he landed two 
companies at Baiquiri, early in the morning of June 23d, 



104 THE EMMONS FAMILY EIGHTH GENERATION 

1898, and was the first and only command to push his out- 
posts and sentinels forward, and report to Gen. Lawton as 
soon as he arrived on the ground. From this time on to 
El Caney, he was engaged in outpost duty and reconnais- 
sance. On June 30th he was under a running fire all the 
afternoon, leaving their killed and wounded where they fell. 
"Then came the long night march to San Juan Ridge; the 
storming of the enemies stronghold; the surrender; the 
waiting with death and suffering from the burning sun and 
fever." After his return from Santiago, he was ordered to 
join Gen. Bacon at Walker, Minn., for duty in connection 
with the Leach Lake Indian campaign. On the 9th of Jan- 
uary, 1899, he sailed on the transport Grant, with the 1st 
Battalion of the 17th Inf., the 4th Inf., and Gen. Lawton 
and staff, from New York for the Philippine Islands. 

There he was in several actions, among which were 
those of Santo Tomas Station, San Fernando, Paugasinjan, 
P. I., and at Conception, Northern Luzon. In 1901 he was 
placed on Laguna Bay, his district extending from Lumbang 
to Binagonan Trail with seven stations. In July 1902, he 
was relieved; ordered to move his Battalion to Manilla, and 
report to his regimental commander at Vancouver Bar- 
racks, Oregon. 

In the fall of 1908 he was commissioned as a Lieut. 
Colonel, and has been ordered to recruiting stations in 
different parts of the country. His family res. Syracuse,

This dwelling familiarly known as "The Emmons

1840, and is located on Maple street in the village of Hins-

The following, clipped from a Georgetown paper, is 
the only knowledge we have of him : 

"William F. Emmons died of pneumonia on Monday after an illness of 
four davs. He was 48 years of age, and had been a resident of Georgetown 
since L878, with the exception of a couple of years spent at Denver and 
Sterling. He followed the vocation of mining and milling, for the last two 
years, being employed in the Chamberlain-Dillingham sampling works. 
He was a musician of considerable ability and has been a member of bands 
and orchestras ever since his residence here. He was a man of reserved dis- 
position, but was endowed with traits that endeared him to all who became 
intimately acquainted with him, and they speak of him as the most honor- 
able of men. His only known relative is Mrs. George McClellan, who with 
Mr. McClellan and their son and daughter, attended the funeral. He was a 
prominent member of the order of Red Men, under whose auspices the funeral 
took place on Wednesday."

PART I— EMMONS' NAMES 

[Numerals placed before names, denote generation; 
those following, show the personal number of an individual. 
A + sign, is an indication that the name appears twice; 
first, in its parents' generation as a child; second, in the 
following generation, (in brackets) as a genealogical num- 
ber. Those inclosed by brackets, indicate that the name 
will appear under that bracketed number. Roman num- 
erals denote page only. Repetition of names are not 
otherwise indexed.]
